My dream has wings, and now I'll watch it fly.

I truly have dreamed of being in print forever.  But times change and digital is new medium, so now I'm dreaming in 1's and 0's, and frankly couldn't be happier.
Please join me in celebrating the release of Dare To Believe. 
Only If You Dare to Believe

The Pulitzer prize winning writer …

Catherine Hemstead Malloy had it all – riches, glamour and happiness – or so it seemed. When her husband dies in an accident, she discovers she never really had anything at all. Now with nothing but a dismal bank account and her precious daughter, Cate fights to rebuild her life—until her daughter is kidnapped. Cate has no money, no resources – why would someone target her child?
 And the knight in shining armor …
Jason St. Pierre doesn't think of himself as a knight, just a man who does what must be done, lives by his rules and damn the consequences.  He'll move heaven and earth to protect the innocent, and his heart—he loved once and lost and won't risk it again, especially to Cate Hemstead.
Their reunion pits them against a kidnapper who is always one step ahead and takes them on a hunt from the majestic mountains of Colorado to the idyllic beaches of Hawaii.  Can they solve the who-dunnit turned why-dunnit kidnapping in time to save Cate's daughter?

Barnes & Noble: 
And at your favorite e-reader store.

Print copy coming soon.
It's been an interesting journey, choosing to publish Indie, and I love talking about it.  I have a few blogs coming up, and I'll post the links here when they happen.  Want me to blog with you?  I'd love it.

And please visit my website

Thanks for celebrating with me. 

I'd like to send a copy of the book, either digital or when it comes out in print, to someone who comments, using that good old random number generator.
